Maxi-Jet multi-use water pumps are three pumps in one: power head, utility pump and now featuring circulation pump option. Still the best power head for powering undergravel filters and running wave maker timers, as well as running small fountains, calcium reactors and skimmers. New to the Maxi-Jet, the conversion kit in the box to turn the power head into a prop style circulation pump for ultimate water movement inside the aquarium for the least amount of energy! The most fully adaptable pump available.
I currently have 3 of these I use as circulation pumps. For the money I believe they are spectacular. They can be a little noisy on start up but after a few minutes they quiet down and run beautifully and do a great job of moving water. I would not buy anything else and they are very versatile as they can be used for power head applications also and everything you need is included with clear directions.
I have the 1200 and use it in water circulation mode. Set up is EASY if you look at the directions and realize it has several different options. Pick the one you want and do what is in the pictures. Easy. And VERY effective. I don't get the noisiness complaint. Mine is VERY quiet. You wouldn't know it was on if you couldn't see the effects of it in the tank. It keeps my substrate (sand) looking clean as it moves fish waste around so the filters can grab it. LOVE LOVE LOVE! ~ 150 gallon tank owner
Just bought a Maxi-Jet 900 and I'm using it in circulation mode and this unit is very loud everything else works well but the I had to put some rubber bands around the impeller cage to quiet it down. The fish love it but the crackling noises are PITA.
